Ho Ho Howay man! Haven’t you heard that Newcastle is the new North Pole?
If you’re looking for the perfect setting to get your festive spirit on then Newcastle is the place to be. With the annual Christmas Market located in the city centre, Newcastle celebrates the holidays like no other. It is the perfect place to enjoy a mulled wine and make a start on your Christmas shopping.
Speaking of Christmas shopping, the city centre is closely located to the largest shopping centre in Europe: the intuMetrocentre. Not only do you have 340 stores to choose from, but you can also get all of your Christmas essentials in the warmth of the indoors. Alternatively, you could also browse in intuEldon Square. It may not be as large as the Metrocentre, but there’s a wide variety of food and drink venues such as the Alchemist or George’s Great British Kitchen in case you work up an appetite amongst all of the festivities.
Why not take part in a festivity unique to Newcastle and visit Fenwick’s Christmas Windows? Following a new theme every year, the department store, located on Northumberland Street, tells a story through their display windows. With amazing moving characters alongside lights and glitter, this Christmas special is perfect for children and will leave you with that warm Christmas buzz that we all know and love.
So grab your Christmas lists, hop in your sleigh and get to the Toon for the perfect Winter Wonderland.
